Ranking Austin’s 8 Most Ridiculous Bloody Marys

June 25, 2014

Ahhh, the Bloody Mary, an Austinite's lifeblood, that beverage that helps us roll out of

bed as visions of bacon and crisp celery (and corn dogs?) dance in our head. There's

the confidence that it will somehow revive us from all those Two Steps we had at

the White Horse last night because... well, it's made with vegetables. Note: in this

context, the word "ridiculous" refers to next-level recipes and unique flavor profiles as

much as it refers to outlandish bouquets of fried accoutrements.

7. Swift's Attic Downtown

The MYO-Bloody Mary Bar thing is nothing new, but Swift's Attic makes the cut on the

strength of their spread. For around $7, you get a glass of vodka and full access to:

two types of Bloody mix, 17-ish types of hot sauce, regular olives, stuffed olives,

pickled okra, carrots, banana peppers, celery, lemon and lime wedges, spices,

horseradish, green beans, pearl onions, jalapeños, cheese cubes, and, most

importantly, bacon and a type of cylindrical meat stick. MMM... meat sticks.
